Top 4 Advantages of Vendor Risk Management Solutions: A Comprehensive Guide to Mitigate Business Risks

Mar 21, 2019

Rapid globalization has created the need to outsource business processes to an increasing number of partners and vendors. This has fueled the growth of the third-party ecosystem, which, in turn, has increased vendor-related risks. It has also made vendor risk management imperative for companies across the globe.

For most companies, meeting regulatory requirements is the prime reason why companies need vendor risk management. Understanding the range of risks and managing them is crucial both for vendors and the company’s customers. For instance, if vendors associate with customers directly, then vendor risk management becomes a formal way to evaluate, track, and measure third-party risks. Organizations having a huge dependency on vendors usually lack sufficient visibility into their vendor networks and expose themselves to high risks. Managing such risks, therefore, becomes a pre-requisite for businesses for sustainable growth.

At SpendEdge, we understand the impact that implementing a vendor risk management framework can have on an organization. Therefore, in this blog, our team of experts has highlighted some key benefits that companies should look to achieve while availing vendor risk management services.

Advantages of vendor risk management solutions

Minimizes risks

With an effective vendor risk management program in place, companies can perform with due diligence and rate risks associated with vendors. They can also track and measure problems and take actions to rectify them before they harm the bottom line of the organization. This abstains companies from losing money or having a disruption of supply.

Reduces costs

A temporary vendor risk management process is usually costly and ineffective, especially if you are considering costs pertaining to data loss, remediation work, and compliance fines. Centralizing and standardizing vendor risk management offers long term benefits for companies. It reduces the cost of evaluating vendors and improves operational efficiency. 

Consolidates vendors

Relying on vendors comes with its own set of risks. These risks can be strategic, operational, or reputational, depending upon the business situation. A consolidated vendor risk management process can help companies to overcome such risks by improving contract terms, reducing costs from audits, and enhancing the productivity of vendors.

Maintains compliance

An effective vendor risk management ensures that all the industry frameworks and data privacy regulations are met by vendors. Moreover, it provides adequate controls to companies to protect data being processed outside their perimeter. This protects companies from fines and penalties.
